garapa decking
Advantage Garapa Decking creates luxurious decks without the high price.

Garapa (also known as Apuleia Leiocarpa, Brazilian Ash, Grapia, Amarealao, Marotoa, Muiratua, Muirajuba) is one of the finest quality hardwoods available that features a fine-grained timber that is light yellow to a warm golden hue. Garapa is an exotic hardwood that is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insect attack. Garapa is naturally scratch resistant which allows the surface to remain smooth for many years, making Garapa an perfect wood for exterior decking. Garapa offers a 30+ year lifespan without preservatives! Our Garapa decking is responsibly harvested from managed forest to provide a truly renewable resource. Garapa is comparable to Ipe and is available at a fraction of the cost. We ship our Garapa decking products direct to your home or job site.

Garapa: Complex Color

Like most of our exotic hardwood decking options, Garapa is a photosensitive wood, meaning its color changes when exposed to light. This means Garapa will mature to a rich brownish color over time, making it a great alternative to Ipe or Cumaru in outdoor projects.

Garapa Decking Profiles

A profile is the overall shape of a board when viewed from the end. It affects both the installation method and final appearance. Any profile can be combined with any edge bevel.

ProfileDescription
Standard (S4S)
A basic rectangular board. It is fastened by driving screws through the face. Wood plugs are often used to hide the screw heads.
Pregrooved
Grooved along one or both edges for use with hidden fastener systems. No screws show in the finished project.
Tongue & Groove (T&G)
A tongue on one edge and a groove on the other. The tongue of one board fits into the groove of the one next to it. Fasteners (nails or screws) are inserted through the tongues, so they are hidden in the finished project.
Shiplap
An overhang on one edge of the board that overlaps a recessed area on the board next to it. One fastener is driven through underneath this overlap, so it is hidden from view, but another fastener must be inserted above the overlap through the visible face of the board. The visible screw heads are often hidden with wood plugs.
Rainscreen
A combination of pregrooved and shiplap. An overhang on one edge of the board overlaps a recessed area on the board next to it. Edges are grooved for use with hidden fasteners, so no screws show in the finished project.
End-Matched Boards are milled along all four edges instead of just the two long edges. This has a distinctive aesthetic effect, but also a practical one: end joints don’t have to land on a framing member (joist or furring strip), which results in fewer cuts, less wasted material, and a faster install.
Deck Tile
Prefabricated, modular tiles that don’t require framing.

An edge bevel is a contour milled onto the edge of the board. It only affects the final appearance of the project, not the installation method. Any edge bevel can be combined with any profile.

Edge BevelDescription
Square Edge Boards fit together snugly with no bevel, creating a smooth surface.
Nickel Gap Boards edges have a rectangular bevel, which creates a narrow space at the joint, resulting in an aesthetic shadow line.
V-Groove Boards edges have an angled bevel, which creates a V-shaped channel at the joint.

Random odd-length orders include odd length boards which are 5′–15′ long.

Standard random length orders include even & odd length boards which are 6′–18′ long.

Boards milled to specific lengths over 7′ will incur an additional upcharge:

Beware of Shady Sellers

Some unscrupulous lumber companies charge hidden extra fees, ship low-grade material, and source their wood from unethical mills. Here are some questions to ask when buying your lumber:

  • Where is the material shipping from?
  • Has the seller actually seen the wood they're selling?
  • Can you visit their warehouse?

Our lumber is sustainably sourced directly from well managed forest and custom milled with our own machinery. We have a huge inventory that you’re welcome to visit any time, and we work with the wood ourselves, so we can guarantee its quality. We don’t charge extra insurance or packaging fees—we cover those for you!

In short, if a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is. Learn more about how to avoid bad lumber companies.
